December 12-13: ConVal Drama Presents "The Other Place"
"The Other Place," directed by ConVal senior Benjamin Carne, is an intellectual and emotional roller coaster. This this brilliantly crafted work by Sharr White, nothing is as it seems.
Juliana Smithton is a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is in jeopardy. Something's not right inside her head as she feels the world closing in around her, so she retreats to the beach house, "the other place," even though her family sold it years ago.
Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present, and the elusive truth about the characters boils to the surface.
Performances are Thursday, December 12, and Friday, December 13, at 7 pm in the Lucy Hurlin Theater. $5 student admission at the door, $7 adults.
